Hugely interesting if you like ancient British history, or landscapes, but this may not be for everyone. Having said that, there are great views. Be aware that you need to access private farmland- warm clothing & sturdy boots are recommended. You'll also have to drive...More

The Arbor Low Stone circle is accessed by parking at a farm, paying 1 pound pp (honesty box) and walking up the hill, across a field where friendly cows are grazing, to the circle. The history is fascinating and the short trek is worth it.

You walk through a small farm and put donations in a little box at the entrance. Most of the stones have been knocked down, but very interesting. No other visitors so our small group had the place to ourselves.

First and foremost, you need to cross a farm yard and a couple of fields to reach these destinations, so either walking or Wellington boots are essential if visiting, particularly in Winter. The stone circle at Arbor Low is one of the best I've seen....More
